2. Pregnancy Aid
Remarkably, stinging nettle tea is something that is often suggested as a natural remedy for women who may be going through an unusually and excessively painful labor. The use of stinging nettle tea can also help to guard against any excessive and heavy bleeding during labor, given that it can act as a pretty effective coagulant.
Moving beyond the actual birthing stage of pregnancy and on to the antenatal side of things, stinging nettle tea can also stimulate and encourage the production of breast milk, which subsequently makes post birth lactation a lot easier. There have been several studies which confirm stinging nettle tea as a very effective natural remedy and herbal medicine for use in pregnancy and childbirth.
The most notable of these studies perhaps was that carries out by Dr. Rachel Emma Westfall, of the University of Victoria, Canada. This study found that more than 80% of participants in a trial found stinging nettle tea to be useful and effective.
